Hmm...let's see, lets see. I swear you'll probably learn more about me, by asking me. I'm an open book, anything goes. We'll start with the basics and if you're interested, we can chat.
I'm a Nor Cal transplant (near Sacramento) and wouldn't have it any other way. I love where I am from, but, San Diego is my new home (I can always take a trip home and visit the family or vice versa). I've been here a little under a year and looking for someone to explore with. That's the main reason I joined Match. Like everyone, I'm tired of meeting people in the bar. It's all fine and dandy, but, then a few days, calls/texts or dates later you start asking yourself what the what?!? Don't even get me started on the 5th wheel moments! Haha.
One of my friends actually told me the other day that they "I F'ing hate you, but, I love you because you're such a loveable jerk". On Facebook of all places! EVERY one "liked" it (even my g'ma! who commented and agreed WHOLEHEARTEDLY). I'm not exactly sure how I should take that, but, I'm going to pretend that it's a good thing! I guess it has to do with the fact that I'm up front and tell it like it is. I'm sarcastic and can't go a day without doing or saying something to put a smile on others faces. I know when I need to be serious and when I can be a clown. Some think that I'm unapproachable. But, I'm really just a big ole, ginger, bear. I'm loyal to a fault. Moving on...!! I was raised to be a gentleman. Meaning I know how to treat my elders and women as such and treat others with respect.
I am pretty energetic, and usually on the go doing something. Hikes, running, going to the gym, or even just getting out and people watching. I want to get back on a snowboard. I learned while I was in Dubai...and then went sand boarding 2 hours later. I also want to find a coed softball team (no clue where to even start with that), badly! That being said, I LOVE my lazy days, just as much **queue "The Lazy Song"**! There is nothing wrong with belly flopping on the couch and vegging out to movies or episodes of HIMYM, NCIS, It's Always Sunny, The League, Big Bang Theory, yada yada yada. Especially if it's a rainy day. I'm not a huge club guy. I'm usually getting "coerced" into them. I'm much more a bar/dive bar guy. I love traveling! I've been to 19 countries and counting, and plan on hitting more (there's plenty of places on my bucket list).
What I'm looking to get out of Match...Ultimately, someone I click with and develop a relationship with. If I happen to meet others along the way and we become platonic friends, that's perfectly fine, too. First and foremost, someone that can handle me being military (deployments are a reality, and can be tough for some). Someone that can keep up with me and dish it back...keep me on my toes. Being sarcastic and having a sense of humor would be in your best interest. ;) I want to find someone who isn't afraid of a man treating her like a lady...like she's important and special to him. Someone who's independent and doesn't need me in her life, but, wants me there. I want to find someone that compliments my life, like I compliment hers. Someone that would want to travel and explore with me.
Kinda like: Have you seen the Jack in the Box commercial where he's playing Scrabble with his wife...?? Yea.
